Led Zeppelin - III [Deluxe Edition][2LP]
Led Zeppelin III is the eponymous third studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released on 5 October 1970 by Atlantic Records in the United States and on 23 October 1970 in the United Kingdom. Composed largely at a remote cottage in Wales known as Bron-Yr-Aur and recorded between May and August 1970, the album represented a maturing of the band's music towards a greater emphasis on folk and acoustic sounds. This surprised many fans and critics, and upon its release the album received rather indifferent reviews. Although it is not one of the highest sellers in Led Zeppelin's catalogue, Led Zeppelin III is now generally praised and acknowledged as representing an important milestone in their history.
Although acoustic songs are featured on its predecessors, it is this album which is widely acknowledged for showing that Led Zeppelin were more than just a conventional rock band, and that they could branch out into wider musical territory.
Deluxe double vinyl LP pressing includes bonus LP that contains previously unreleased studio outtakes. Digitally remastered edition of the Hard Rock quartet's 1970 album housed in a gatefold sleeve with eight page booklet.
